EUGENE, Ore. -- A Eugene neighborhood has been handing out a treat to families on Halloween for a decade.

Organizers at the home on Acorn Park Street said they started their Thriller show after Michael Jackson passed in 2009.

The couple that owns the house said they own an entertainment company, and recruit friends and dancers to choreograph dances every year.

Now in their 10th year, parents said they enjoy bringing their kids out and the kids love it, too.

One "Ghostbuster" trick-or-treater we talked to said, "Uh, pretty much the scary stuff. Like all the zombies and stuff."

A "Unicorn Cowgirl" trick-or-treater said, "I like the zombie part, yeah. And also, I'm going to be in the show sometime."

After each show performers go around with buckets of candy and dance while handing it out to the kids.
